Cobra Radspeed Vs Taylormade Sim Irons Comparison And Review

The Cobra Radpseed are at the very forefront of technology in golf clubs and are gaining in credibility every year with Bryson and Rickie Fowler both playing the clubs.

Taylormade are at the top of the golf ladder for a reason and while the new Sim 2’s are available, the Sim range of irons are still incredibly appealing to high and mid handicap golfers.

Cobra Radspeed Overview

The Cobra Radspeed are built for ball speed and distance, there are no two ways around it and they are offered in One Length and Progressive Length form.

The clubs are crafted with A.I, a weight in the toe and a 3D printed medallion on the back for perfect weight placement.

The Forged Face offers tremendous distance but the clubs also have plenty of flex for forgiveness and improved turf interaction over the Speedzone irons.

Arrcoss Sensors in the top of the club complete a very impressive offering from Cobra.

Taylormade Sim Irons Overview

Taylormade Sim Irons built on the tremendously successful M Series which culminated in the M6 distance irons.

We see a lot of the same features like the speed pocket which promotes ball speed and the Speed Bridge which adds to the overall stability of the clubs.

The face is ultra thin for ball speed and the Inverted Cone Technology increase the sweet spot and reduces side spin for forgiveness and you also have an echo damping system to reduce vibrations.

If you need more forgiveness for higher handicap players, you need to be using the Sim Max OS irons.

Overall the Sim Max Irons are incredibly high performing and we would have to recommend them over the Cobra Radspeed for now.

Cobra Radspeed – First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the irons is that they have the chunky sole of a game improvement iron and the strong lofts are made for ball speed and distance

The 10g screw weight in the toe of the club also jumps out to use and it is complemented by a matching weight in the heel of the club for the perfect CG and a high MOI,

As soon as you start striking these irons, you notice the power and consistency in the clubs, when you catch a hold of the large grips and start letting some shots rip.

That is for good reason, they are crafted with AI for perfect weight placement and the 3D printed medallion on the back improves stability and reduces vibrations.

The thin flexible face offers a ton of forgiveness and ball speed and these irons also have plenty of turf interaction for the better players.

Taylormade Sim Max – First Impressions

The first thing to notice about these Irons is the striking looks. The clubs have a cavity back design with more thickness towards the bottom of the design for more ball speed.

In the clubs we have a low Center of Gravity, a wide sole for a bigger sweet spot, forgiveness and echo camping technology for a nice sound even on Mishits.

The Speed Bridge, Speed Pocket and and ultra thin face all account for club head transferring into balls speed for maximum distance, accuracy and tons of forgiveness.

The Sim comes in a Sim format, Sim Max and the Sim Max Os.

The Sim are going to be excellent for mid handicappers. The sim max is more forgiving for high handicappers and the Sim Max Os is more offset for anybody how needs maximum forgiveness and also offset to correct any slicing.

The Sim Max Irons have recently been upgraded to the Sim2 family for 2021.
